I have no doubt you looked at the title of this post and thought “Small business? How in the world is Pampered Chef a small business?” In the big scheme of things it is not a small business, but for all the consultants around the country it is their small business! Founded in 1980, Pampered Chef has a long list of kitchen gadgets that millions of people use in their kitchens daily. I am NOT one of those people since I’m a non-cook, but a lover of gadgets and all things nifty – I have ordered many a product for my mother over the years.

Recently I had a few friends ask if I knew anyone who sold Pampered Chef as they had some items on their wish list. So I reached out to my friend Shar who I have know since we were in our school days way too many years ago! Thanks to the world of Facebook we reconnected, and I even had the pleasure of having lunch with Shar and her family when they came to visit Georgia a few years ago. In need of nothing myself, I agreed to host a party to raise money for my friend’s puppy rescue – Bosley’s Place! Perhaps you weren’t aware that many direct sales companies like Pampered Chef offer fundraising opportunities for charitable organizations! If you need a fundraiser that is out of the norm…be sure to consider reaching out to my friend Shar and doing your own Pampered Chef fundraiser!

This “interview” and introduction will be a little different since most of the businesses that have been in the spotlight are creative/handmade businesses, but ultimately – it’s all about supporting people in their business!
